Today’s guest is Bedros Keuilian, someone who I connected with through our mutual friend Craig Ballantyne, who has also appeared on this podcast. Craig shared with me how Bedros is using paid traffic to effectively sell $25,000 fitness franchises (as you’ll hear he’s now getting $30,000 for each franchise).
Bedros is a best-selling author, speaker and business consultant, as well as the founder and CEO of Fit Body Boot Camp, one of the nation’s fastest-growing franchises with nearly 700 locations worldwide.
In this episode he talks all about his journey to get to where he is today, coming to the United States as a young immigrant with his family from Armenia. You’ll hear how Bedros learned the value of good customer service at such a young age, why he got into fitness and the role that having mentors played in his learning of marketing and sales techniques.
After starting out as a personal trainer, Bedros moved online promoting his Fit Body Boot Camps and he’s now teaching their franchisees to position themselves to succeed in a crowded market.
You’ll hear how Bedros has such a clear understanding of his ideal target customer, and the ways he’s successfully leveraging brand awareness to lower his Facebook advertising costs and continue to attract the right franchises, and so much more.
